BLACKENED is the new super-premium whiskey collaboration from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell and Metallica. A blend of hand-selected, well-aged bourbons & ryes, uniquely finished in black brandy casks and the earth-shattering music of Metallica.

 

Using our proprietary BLACK NOISE™ finishing process, each batch of whiskey is blasted with its very own Metallica playlist, selected and arranged by the band themselves. The low-frequency sound waves force the whiskey to penetrate deeper into the barrel, extracting more caramel, honey, and vanilla flavors from the wood. The result is a magnificently balanced whiskey, robust in flavor and ideal for sipping neat, on the rocks, or in a classic cocktail.

 

TASTING NOTES

Burnt caramel, oak & honey on the nose, with honey, cinnamon, allspice, dark fruit, clove and mint filling the palate. The finish is long and smooth, slightly creamy with hints of butterscotch taffy, maple and honey.

 

THE BLEND

A blend of North American Bourbons and Ryes with an average of 8+ years, uniquely finished in Black Brandy Casks, resulting in the perfect balance of sweetness & spice.
